Zelensky invites Parliament to allow people of Ukraine to submit bills
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has proposed that the list of those entitled to pursue a legislative initiative, which is currently defined by Article 93 of the Constitution of Ukraine, be supplemented.
In its current form, the norm deprives Ukrainian citizens of the opportunity to be the country's "only source of power."
The relevant bill has been posted on Parliament website.
"It is also determined that all holders of right of legislative initiative, proposed to be enshrined in the Constitution of Ukraine, implement it in cases and in the manner determined by the Constitution and laws of Ukraine," reads the explanatory note.
In addition, the draft suggests that the Constitution of Ukraine be supplemented with the fundamental rule on the legislative procedure, according to which the law shall be adopted in line with the requirements of the legislative procedure defined by the Constitution and the laws of Ukraine.
As UNIAN reported earlier, during a Warsaw meeting with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence on Sep 1, Zelensky said all major reforms would be launched in Ukraine during the first year of his presidency.
